The heart of San Francisco’s predominantly Latino neighborhood is 24th Street, a colorful collection of restaurants, taquerias, Mexican bakeries, produce markets, specialty shops and murals. In addition to its unique historic, religious, and architectural significance, Mission Dolores has always had a central place in the civic and cultural life of San Francisco.
Today, besides being a destination for hundreds of thousands of San Francisco visitors, Mission Dolores is an important part of the community, the center of a vibrant, diverse parish which ministers to all in need. Mission Dolores at 16th and Dolores streets is the oldest structure in San Francisco.
Many of the city’s pioneers are buried in an adjacent cemetery. In May, the city celebrates Cinco de Mayo and Carnaval.
